Archival Workshop

Photography Collections

of (Financial) Companies. Part II

10 Jun 2021

Athens , Greece

eabh in cooperation with National Bank of Greece

This workshop wants to put the spotlight on the photography collections of not exclusively, but mainly financial companies.

Photography collections of corporations are often broad and extensive but very little explored for marketing, research and digital access. This archival workshop aims to discover the contents, importance and use of corporate photography collections of (financial) organisations: Where are these often-extensive collections? How are they used? Which is their use and marketing value for institutors themselves? Which is their value for research beyond financial history (social, political history, etc.)? How can they be made available to a wider audience of scholars and the public eye?

eabh Annual Meeting

Finance & Migration

conference

11 Jun 2021

Athens, Greece

eabh in cooperation with National Bank of Greece

This conference will look at the relationship between the financial sector and migration – taking a comparative historical view.

We are interested in scholarly work that looks into the relationship between migratory flows and the financial sector.  How were  mass movements of people  financed during chaotic times? How were migrants integrated into the financial systems of the country of their arrival?  Which is the spectrum of agency between private networks, state responsibility and the banks in between?

Easy Monetary Policy

Cure or Curse?

22 Jun 2021

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

eabh in cooperation with Allianz Global Investors

Harold James (Princeton University) and Eric Barthalon (Head of Research Allianz SE) will take a long-term perspective on easy monetary policies and their implications.

Post Great Financial Crisis, major central banks have cut rates to, or below zero and have provided unprecedented amounts of liquidity to the system ever since. After first steps to normalise monetary policy, we have seen a renewed round of monetary easing in 2019.  Further, the COVID-19 crisis in 2020 brought back discussions about helicopter money and direct credit to the banking sector.

Archival Workshop

GDPR & Historical Archives

2021

Frankfurt am Main, Germany

eabh in cooperation with the European Central Bank

This workshop aims to look at the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on historical archives, in particular, but not exclusively, in the financial sector.

Since May 2018, the GDPR has set common standards of data protection within the European Union and, to a certain extent, beyond. This regulation received critical acclaim by the public and scholars alike, however not without facing wide criticism for the severity of the changes it requires to implement.

What is new for historical archives under the GDPR regime?
